20. Thanks, BamaBecky! The NYT and their ilk are in deep doo-doo.
They've been caught red-handed as co-conspirators in making a case for an illegal war.



TimesSelective: Judy-Culpa Raises More Questions Than It Answers

by Arianna Huffington

The first question raised by the Times Judy-Culpa and by Judy Millers own account is: Who told Judy about Valerie Plame (or Flame as the name appears in Judys notes)? According to these two pieces, the name was immaculately conceived. "As I told Mr. Fitzgerald, I simply could not recall where that came from," Miller writes.

When the Plame case broke open in July 2003, these notes were presumably no more than a few weeks old. But who had revealed Plames name was not seared on Miller's mind?

This is as believable as Woodward and Bernstein not recalling who Deep Throat was. It also means that Judy went to jail to protect a source she can't recall.

Update: Not Since Geraldo Cracked Open that Vault...

Now that I have spent a few hours absorbing this latest installment in the ongoing soap opera "Desperate Editors," I can safely say that not since Geraldo cracked open Al Capones vault has there been a bigger anticlimax or a bigger sham. After all, the question everybody has been asking is: who was the source who leaked Valerie Plames identity to Judy Miller?

And the answer? She can't remember.

And just like Smirko and Sneer, these media whores better know the blood of thousands -- hundreds of thousands -- is on their hands.
